In this tutorial I will show you how to turn a tic tac box into a pencil sharpenner.

You will need:

Tic tac box

Scissors and duct tape for decorating(you do not have to decorate but I thought it might be fun)

Pencil sharpenner

Hot glue gun

Step 1: Remove Lid From Tic Tac Box

With an exacto-knife or scissors remove the lid from your Tic Tac box. It should come off easily once the sticker is broken.

Step 2: Cut Lid to Fit Sharpenner

My sharpenner is a bit too wide for the lid. I cut one side of the lid to make it fit.

Step 3: Add Sharpenner

Put hot glue on the edges of the sharpenner that will touch the lid. Now put it in place. After the glue dries, make sure it fits the box

Step 4: Time to Decorate!

Once everything is in place and it all fits together, it is time to decorate the box, you can use anything to decorate with but I am using duct tape. First, I wrapped the box in the tape ans cut the tape so it would fit. I took a different colour and made a stripe using the same technique. Then, I covereved the bottom and lid. I made sure to not cover the part that lifts up so that I can sharpen pencils. Then I covered that paet wth a different colour so I know where it is.
